Top Five Wednesday: Favourite Jokesters

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and now hosted by Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes. You can find out more at Godreads group.

This week’s theme is ‘favourite jokesters’ so I’ll be talking about my favourite funny characters!

(1) Fred and George Weasley (The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling)

These two were definitely the masters of jokery and always the ones to make light of every situation. They even opened a joke shop called ‘Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes’. Not putting them at the top of this list would be a crime!

(2) Peeves the Poltergeist (The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling)

I feel like many people forget about Peeves because he wasn’t in any of the Harry Potter movies and he isn’t talked about that much. His forte was causing havoc and devising hilarious pranks to get on everyone’s nerves.

(3) Mark Watney (The Martian by Andy Weir)

For a person who got stuck on Mars where it must have been extremely bleak and desolate, Mark was so, so funny! He was constantly making jokes in the book (and making me laugh out loud).

(4) Mia Corvere (Nevernight by Jay Kristoff)

I wouldn’t necessarily call Mia a ‘jokester’ but she is hilarious. Honestly, some of the things she says and does makes me laugh so much.

Who are your favourite jokesters? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Omg yes, Mia was so funny! I don’t think I stopped laughing when I was reading Nevernight. Between Mia, Mr Kindly, and the sarcastic footnotes guy, I was pretty much constantly on the verge of tears, rolling on the floor, laughing like a bloody maniac 😂😆🙃 I deffo think that the humor in Nevernight is a very underrated aspect of the novel, but it was very much part of the reason I loved the book so much 🙂
